On August 5th, Dr Beth Walker, Dean of the CSU College of Business, shared with us the colleges’ Strategic Plan 2025: “Business for a Better World”.  The formulation of Mission, Vision, and Goals was derived from all constituents, including students, faculty and community.  The key questions raised were, "Where does the College want to be in five years?", and "What do “we” want to be known for?"  These questions were framed in CSU's unique foundational context - a Land Grant University, a Research level 1 institution (Carnegie Foundation designation) and its’ unique location in the Rocky Mountain west.
Monday, August 3, RCFC President Del Benson hosted and moderated the second in a series of  seminars on Community Civility.  This session, titled How Police and University Promote Civility, heard from Fort Collins Police Services Assistant Chief John Feyen, and CSU's Warner College Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Dr. Rickey Frierson.  To hear an excellent definition of the difference between "racism" and "racist", and why the statement "I don't see color" is offensive, please check out the recorded seminar at
